Description

This run takes a parallel line to the Cartujo red slope near the bottom of the run. Beyond the division of Cartujo and Monaguillo red slopes continue on Cartujo, taking a high traverse off the run to the left, possibly with a small amount of walking. Descend a variety of lines parallel to Cartujo, keeping your speed at the bottom to get back to the bottom station of the lifts. There are a few rocks to avoid and being relatively low altitude the snow quality is variable.
